She has also received radio airplay and blog reviews in several countries such as Poland, Africa, Australia, and London.

 

SHENNA has lived in a colorful world since the release of her first EP, "Dream In Color", holding the number-one spot on Bandcamp in the DMV market. Her debut album "Made Of Gold" opened up many doors for SHENNA as she began landing major sync licensing placements from that project. Since then her music has been licensed on over 15 movies, tv shows, and commercials including “Lethal Weapon”, “Selling Sunset" "The Bad Girls Club", Netflix Film "Miss Stevens", and Disney's original film,"Star Girl".  She has received notable press on Rolling Stone India, The Washington Post, Nylon Magazine, Billboard, and more. At the beginning of 2021 she partnered with Insomnia Cookies in honor of her single "Try Another Taste" and performed in store for a 3 part series.

SHENNA is currently a voting member for the Recording Academy & a member of Forbes The Culture community. She is an advocate for encouraging the youth to embrace who they are and speaks about mental health awareness in her music.

 

 

Known for incorporating colored themes for each project she releases, her upcoming single "Cry Slowly" will be included on her highly anticipated red themed album. "Cry It Out" was created in Shenna's bedroom studio after an emotional time in her personal life. She wrote the song as a vent in her phone notes while crying alone as a way to heal and move on from the pain. She infused the track with a live string arrangement along with her producer Fong.She looks forward to showcasing her love of pop, jazz, and r&b in this next rollout of songs.

AMBASSADOR

"I have to say Hunkon Studios is by far my favorite emerging fashion brand. It is rare to find pieces that have flare with high quality material. Every time I wear a look from Hunkon I get compliments!" 

"I highly recommend Many Ethnicities hair products for color-treated hair! The conditioner immediately detangles my curls and adds

shine!"
